6:00am
explosion yesterday evening that created a horrifying scene many people will never nor get. it began with a thunder russ rowel sending up a human ball of fire. it shot up hundreds of feet into the air, it jumped from home to home with poiferl winds stirring the flames. >> jade hernandez is at one of the shelters but first let's go to claudine wong. >> reporter: good morning, dave, yes, we are on glenview and skyview, as close to the command post as they will allow us at this hour. take a look but hind me we can see activity over there. we have seen fire instructions arrive and emergency personnel. ins chiewper two told us we are about three blocks from the actual fire area, firefighters are making progress, there is mostly smoke being seen so neighborhoods certainly much different from these pictures we saw yesterday and overnight when this explosion rocked the
6:01am
neighborhood last night and created -- [ inaudible ] >> reporter: -- in its wake. at this hour the priority is still getting this fire out. again we are seeing a lot of smoke coming from that neighborhood. you have the victim's number expected to keep changing as they are trying to account for everyone. the lieutenant governor's office is also trying to get a handle on the situation. abel maldonado has declared a state of emergency. he was on scene this morning and is planning a briefing but -- [ inaudible ] >> reporter: -- fluid situation on their end and they are still trying to figure out the exact location of that briefing, which should be in about an hour or so. certainly everyone is still asking how could this happen. witnesses all report cheering and feeling the explosion
6:02am
before that fireball erupted. >> for the last three weeks right down the street after day from work i could smell that distinct smell from the gutter and sewer, just a week and a half ago, pg&e telling me to shut my garage. they are investigating a gas smell, they out there a little bit and load up and took off and now the after moot is this, which is ridiculous. >> reporter: we just talked with pg&e within the last hour, they say the investigation is continuing. they are certainly looking into this. ntsb really taking a hit on that and they are going to look into how this crater, this massive creator was created from this natural gas explosion and really who is at fault. for now though there is so many multiple facets happening as they deal with the fire, they deal with the response and the hundreds of firefighters that have come in here to try to help with this effort. we come back out here live to the command post, again this is skyview and around the glenview area for those familiar with
6:03am
this area. they have taken that area over and they basic al have filled it with their emergency vehicles. again they have declared this a crime scene and are keeping everyone back. you have to go through several road blocks to get through. there are people allowed in their homes here because this area is not in danger of burning but they are really restricting a lot of access and they do that because when al the emergency vexes come in they do not want to have any trouble getting to them where they need to be. jade what are you finding? >> we are live at one of the shelters at the veteran's memorial center. we do have an update on how many evacuees are actually spend in the night here. there is about 27 people upstairs sleep especially and about six who are stationed about a quarter of a mile away at a senior center. we are really in the thick of
6:04am
the volunteer effort this morning. you can see a lot of pieces that have been delivered. canned food items this table kind f perishable items. volunteers got here tonight and immediately got to work organizing the food and clothes brought in by the community and there has been an outpour of support. much of the perishable food has been taken elsewhere but they say they were big overnight donors, as for needs this morning definitely monetary donations. sent money to the red cross in care of the san bruno firest if you would like to donate. another need is clothes for infants, formula, baby items, some of the things that volunteers have found that they need out here this morning. about a half-hour ago we spoke to the director of this rec center. she says in two hours the san bruno lion's club will provide breakfast for those staying here. >> you know you always do the drills and those things and most of us have been trained
6:05am
through the california system but when it is right here n your neighborhood and you know the people that are effected by it, that -- it adds a whole new layer. >> they are going to let the people who registered with us needing assistance of some type or other let them go through here and pick up whatever they might need and whatever is left over will then be given to one of the local charities. >> reporter: as i mentioned this isn't the only shelter set up. the other temporary shelter is located at the church of the highlands at 1900 monterrey drive. i want to bring you back out here live pause the red cross has 15 to 20 volunteers helping where we are this morning. many more spontaneous volunteers who just felt the need to come down here and lend a hand. you are looking at a few of them. we will hear one of their stories coming up but if you are looking for information about a loved one log onto safe

6:32am
out what caused that $ly gas explosion in san bruno. that is ground zero but dozens of homes have already been destroyed. at this hour parts of the neighborhood are still on fire and that is hampering the rescue efforts. let's go to claudine wong. >> reporter: good morning, dave, yes, we are at the command center. and you can see behind me there appears to be a briefing. this is on sky view and glenview and they have basically taken over this parking lot. the fire area is just about three blocks from here and now that we do have daylight we do expect more information to be coming in. the devastated neighborhood that got hit just about three blocks from here, smoke still coming from there and fire,
6:33am
still, what we are seeing this morning is a human improvement from the incredible pictures we saw yesterday from this same area when the explosion just raced through this neighborhood. at this point there is still a lot of consider for any other possible victims that could be in that devastated neighborhood. emergency crews are still trying to account for everyone but with more than 50 homes destroyed and more than 100 effected you have a big task on your hand and a lot of people that need to pe accounted for. the lieutenant-governor will be talking with us in the next half-hour to an hour. that situation still fluid because he was out here for a few hours this morning from 130 time to 4:00 taking a look at the scene, getting a look at the damage, but even where they
6:34am
want to put hem that location is changing now, because of the fluidity of the situation. they heard it. >> i hard an explosion. >> the whole street is engulfed in flails. it is ridiculous. >> the whole house started shaking like it was a huge earthquake and windows started rattling and we just heard a big explosion and everyone ran outside, the whole block ran outside and we didn't see -- [ inaudible ] >> 0-airplane crash, airplane crash, and no one really knew what happens and we just hear after one screaming and boom, flames just came out of nowhere. >> reporter: now evidence of where that all began is pretty easy to see from a huge creator that was created by that huge
6:35am
explosion. pg&e telling us this morning they are looking into this. we have talked to neighbors who report smelling gas for several days and in fact a couple of weeks before all of this happened so a lot of people frustrated saying you know was this something that could have been predebted could have been prevented had some kind of nall gas problem bin inspected again, this obviously will all be locked into it. back out here live at the command post a couple of trucks making their way through. this is just above the fire lynne and the fire area, beyond them is a little hard to see but we can see smoke out here, you can certainly smell it. you can see county fire through there and a backhoe and again if we go back down there you can now see the number of
6:36am
personnel gathering in this area presumably for a briefing. they have pushed us back a distance. they certainly don't want effecting the easy flow of traffic as they try to get a handle an this situation and still try to get a handle on this fire. and we are going to keep an eye on this situation. most of the damage occurred after the sun went don so now that we are getting daylight, news chopper 2 is up there we hope to bring you picture of what this neighborhood has now become coming up a little later. live in san bruno, claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> we want to go to allie rasmus at the st.ñfrancis
6:37am
hospital with an update on the victims taken there. >> reporter: i just spoke with a public information officer from san francisco or excuse me, st.ñfrancis memorial hospital. she says later on this morning we will be hearing directly from the physicians and the medical people who have spent the hours treating the burn victims from the explosion and fire in san bruno. st.ñfrancis does have a specialized burn center and right now there are four patients here receiving care. three are in critical condition. one is in serious condition. the patients who are here at st.ñfrancis were transferred from kizer early this morning. now in the aftermath of the fire a total of 15 people were brought to kizer south san francisco medical center.
6:38am
that was one of the central locations a lot of the injured were taken to. several people were brought to san francisco general hospital. 1 is in serious condition suffering from smoke inhalation. one of the five was released. right now officials at st.ñfrancis hospital say later on this morning we will expect to hear from some of the physicians and medical personnel working at this hospital's burn center. we will continue to monitor the situation and update you when we find out exactly when that press conference will happen. for now reporting live in san francisco, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. >> 6:38. there is a lot to talk about and sal is coming back not only to look at our area but a big
6:39am
mess, a big -- something just happened in southern california. >> that's right, dave, you are familiar with the l.a. area, in phone tan a, california a train has derailed, one person has been critically injured and another person has been yn juried. these are pictures from one of the news choppers there. this train obliterated the
6:40am
other train. one person has been injured there. and another critical injured -- [ inaudible ] >> -- through the area, if you want to drive up and down the peninsula i would use 101 and stay away from 280 for now even though it is open and by the way pam asked me if the san francisco airport is effected. not really put the airspace above this disaster area has been effected. a lot of small aircraft from all kinds of media outlets are there so it is dangerous flying in that area but sfo has not been effected per se. let's move long and take a look 880 north and southbound the traffic here looks good on the nimitz freeway. now, here is steve. >> all right. sal, thank you. a little bit of fog. that is it.
